We have often talked about how to get more youth involved in genealogy and family history research.
I was so excited to learn today that the
and Ancestry.com have partnered to provide access to Ancestry.com to students
everywhere on campus. And, that’s not

“Helping people discover their family history is at the heart of our mission at Ancestry.com,” said , general manager of the Ancestry Institution Product. “We are excited to work alongside the
students and staff to uncover new information about their ancestors that will
help them better understand who they are and where they come from.” University
At UIndy, the Ancestry.com access is a key component in the annual of programs and events. This year’s series features guest speakers, discussions and workshops built around the theme “Who Do You Think You Are?”

Do you know of other similar collaborations, at the University/College level, besides schools with dedicated genealogy degree programs?
